Jazzy, a very interesting question. No, I don't think Jasper and Alice waited to be together. I have no other reason other than my interpretations to believe this, but I don't think, on the whole, vampires are big on the whole marriage thing. It seems to me that they meet, they fall in love and just become partners, are together from that moment on. Weddings, ceremonies seem to be a much more human thing, which actually goes to reason why the Cullens might enjoy having weddings. As vegetarians, they are in better touch with their humanity than traditional vampires, so they might hold to those ideas of human traditions closer than the others of their kind. But, Jasper was "raised" for lack of a better term, as a traditional vampire. While he was very traditional in some ways, an old soul, I think something like a wedding would have lost its' importance to him. He knew from the moment he met Alice that she was his life, and I think he understood very soon after that that he was hers. That would be enough for him. I think when they finally did decide to have a wedding, he did it for Alice. So, they would have seen no reason to delay making love. Their committment to each other was stronger than any married couple.
EclipseRox, wow, such an interesting speculation. If Alice was human, I just don't know if Jasper would have been able to resist drinking her. I like to think somewhere, he would have found the restraint, but I just can't say that with any certainty.
But, to answer your question about if Jasper and Alice were in Edward & Bella's place, good gods. First, I think Alice would have been able to reassure everyone with her visions. But, I also think, if Alice was as determined as Bella was to keep her baby, she would have downright lied to make them all believe she saw things turning out fine. Jasper, even though he believed Alice, would have still been the burning man. But, I agree with you that it would have been made so much worse for him because of his gift. Yes, Jasper would do whatever was necessary to help Alice.
